I'm a GoodReads user testing new waters after the serious website changes. I mostly read fiction, usually Anglophone classics/ modern classics; I like nonfiction (mostly social and cultural history), good fantasy and graphic novels. For guilty pleasure, I read advice and how-to books. I made at least two reading resolutions recently; 1. read less, live more; 2. read books which give me more pleasure. I have poor filters, and books I find stylistically pleasing tend to be depressing, so I need to do something about that; if you think you know a book that is very well written, but won't make me weep, please drop me a line.

A Short History of Nearly Everything

A Short History of Nearly Everything - Bill Bryson "If this book has a lesson, it is that we are awfully lucky to be here." An excellent and humbling book. Yet be warned: while listening to it, I've been wondering in a daze, asking my more biologically, paleonthologically, geographically minded friends the bizarrest questions. This might happen to you, too:)
